My child is not the minimum age for doing a course, what can they access?

The minimum age for this course is set by the awarding body (1st4Sport) as it allows people to run sessions independently, and is the same minimum age requirement for all their Level 2 qualifications.  Hence, I am afraid we cannot allow coaches onto the courses before they are 18.

We recommend they use the time before they turn 18 to get some more coaching experience at their club and/or school and attend other online workshops where the minimum age is 16.

The courses are run throughout the year though, so as soon as your child turns 18, they can book onto one of the upcoming courses.
